Default Looking for Mselig

Hi All,

I'm hoping Mselig is keeping an eye on these pages for FS One posts and, in particular, if he can offer some help for the message I posted at .........bad link............?[sm=drowning.gif]

Thanks,
Dave

Arrrgh, that would be posting number 1709 of the long, consolidated FS One Thread.

Thanks,

Hi All,

I'm hoping Mselig is keeping an eye on these pages for FS One posts and, in particular, if he can offer some help for the message I posted
which would be posting number 1709 of the long, consolidated FS One Thread.
and post #1709 says this:
I'd like to see my H9 Spitfire with a .91 in the next expansion pack.

For the record, I sent an email in to FSOne assistance (Post 1683 and 1684) but still no reply as yet...

Do the two posts contain a question for Mike? If you'd cut and paste them into a post in this thread, it'd save the guy a bunch of time. He comes around, just hasn't had any recent questions to answer.

Hi again,

Ok, I hope this isn't poor forum etiquette but here's my question:

Hi Guys,

Ok, I've made great progress on some non-stock panos that I like but now I have run into a couple of catches.

I searched and downloaded 'equirectangular panos' from Flickr.com, with big enough resolution to suit the tiling described in the inertiasoft FAQ. The images worked great and saved me the trouble of taking pics and stitching them together. Basically, I'm trying to set up a few panos to use with sailplanes to simulate interesting slopes in the mountains or near water but I guess they don't really conform to the Panoexample that Inertiasoft has kindly generated ... because that panoexample assume a perfectly flat flying field and surroundings (works great for flying off of beaches though). I've also made a couple that I plan to use to learn helis later. For the ,moment, my issues basically boil down to two hurdles and one question:

1. The take off location I'm using is generally higher than the 'bottom' of the field or the landing zone. For example, in one, I have a hillside road that parallels the ocean (see attached if it worked). I can launch from the road fine (powered or sailplane),and fly nicely above the horizontal plane where the takeoff occurs but if I dip below the 'glass floor' (that represents an ideally flat flying field in the panoexample), the plane shatters asit would if hitting the ground. To overcome this, I thought I would smartly copy the .dom file and.col file from the Westville Miners pano but it turns out that a collision file isn't in the directory for that one. Any suggestions on what file I should copy or how I could correctly overcome this issue?

2. Also, how is the sizing of the aircraft controlled as they travel into the near- or far-distance of the pano? Even in the Westville Miner's pano, if you fly behind the launch position I have noticed that the size of the plane shrinks quickly to a pin point such that the plane is even smaller than a blade of grass in the pano. The same effect occurs in some of the samples that I have set up. Even though the plane looks like a good size at take off, it very quickly shrinks as you are flying away and I would say it shrinks more quickly (i.e. out of proportion with surroundings) than the surroundings. I've been wondering if one of the factors in one of the files is a shrink rate control?

3. Lastly, not a problem because I'm not there yet but, is a map available showing where thermals are located when using a pano with thermals?

I hope the Inertiasoft guys and Michael are still monitoring this thread?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Dave
